Residents beaten in NFA Minor Cup

The only game played in the Standard Security Blyth and Wansbeck Sunday League at the weekend saw Marden Residents go out of the NFA Minor Cup.

They lost at home to Blucher Blue Star 6-2, although officially the game was switched to Wallbottle Campus during the week.

Paul Richardson scored both goals for Residents while Chris Ridgeway was the pick of their players.

Burradon and New Fordley will again try to play their FA Sunday Cup tie against Newton Aycliffe this coming weekend. This will be at Durham City’s ground on the 3G pitch.
